Description

We are thrilled to announce our brand new Advanced Puppy Classes!

With the dark nights and wintery weather coming in fast we have decided to offer previous Puppy Class clients the opportunity to continue the training as your dogs move into adolescence and the difficult 'teenage' period :)

This is the stage in your dogs life where it is very important to be instilling and maintaining good habits that will see you well into the future!

The course will start on the 3rd of October at Merryoak festival hall and will be on Tuesday evenings at 8pm. It is a 6 week course and there will be a maximum of 5 in the class. The course is £85.

An idea of what we will be covering;

Understanding body language & canine communication. We would like you to become an expert on reading your dog and others. This fascinating subject allows you to strengthen your bond and also understand more of what your furry friend is actually feeling/thinking. Once you start down this path you will never look at dogs the same again!

Over the course of the 6 weeks we will learn a trick in class. Tricks are brilliant for perfecting your training skills and always a good party piece! We will give you a few options of tricks to try and aim to have a friendly competition on the last class to see how everyone has done :)

Teaching a stay. This is a fantastic control method and useful for polite door behaviour and safety. We aim to have you be able to walk through a door whilst your pup patiently stays for you to come back!

Loose lead walking challenges! Let's get this cracked! We will give you new and fun ways of challenging yourselves and your pooch (there might even be an egg and spoon walking challenge)!!!!

Advanced settling. With the Christmas season coming up you will have more guests at your house or may be going away with your pup. We aim to have a reliable settle you can use in ALL situations! Pubs, parties, bed and breakfasts, in-laws.... everywhere!

Advanced Impulse Control. We want to take this to the next level. They can all leave food on the floor but will they leave christmas trees? Presents? Granmas christmas dinner? We will show you how powerful this technique can be and how by giving your dog choice can open up a world of possibilities!

And much more...

Reserve your space on this popular training course by selecting a start date and paying a £20 deposit, total course price is £85.

What to bring to class;

  • High reward treats – the class is a distracting environment and to keep your pups attention you will need something really tasty, example; Cheese, hotdog, chicken.


  • Cut these treats up really small, as small as you can get away with, ¼ the size of a pea. We will be doing a rapid reward rate whilst they are learning so it is also best to either only give them half their dinner potion on training nights or bring that half with you to class.


  • A toy. Not a squeaky (distracting for other dogs) ideally something long so there is a big distance between your hand and the tiny land shark you just invited to live in your home. If their favourite toy is something small like a teddy, tie a bit of rope or an old dressing gown cord to it.


  • A bed/mat for your puppy to settle on.


  • A chew/kong to keep them busy for the times when we are talking.

T&C’s Deposits are non – refundable and full payment is due 48 hours prior to first session. Home courses are to be taken over a maximum of 8 weeks, group class start and end dates are set, unless discussed before booking is made. Please give 48 hours notice prior to your appointment/class if you need to cancel or rearrange. Payments are non – refundable after the 48 hours except under extenuating circumstances.
